Daytona International Speedway Replica
ARA is pleased to present a very colorful replica of the Daytona International Speedway. This replica was licensed by DIS and offered for sale by the Danbury Mint in 2002. As the promotional material for the replica stated, “this magnificent sculpture features extraordinary accuracy and fine detail. Every aspect of this world renowned racetrack is meticulously recreated, from the brightly colored stock cars on the 2.5 mile tri-oval to the multitude of parked cars and buses on the lush infield lawn.”
The description continued “Superbly crafted and carefully hand painted by skilled artisans, this amazing replica comes mounted on a handsome hardwood base with a brass title plaque. Actual size approximately 12” long x 8” wide.”
As the photographs illustrate, the replica also faithfully reproduces the infield road course (site of the Daytona 24 Hours classic and other Grand American events) and Lake Lloyd. The track lighting is faithfully reproduced. An especially evocative view is presented of the banking and grandstands and the pit road. The sculpture depicts a mid-race scene with packed grandstands and infield.
Unfortunately, this outstanding product is apparently no longer being sold.
